Hello from Somerset

Bit of an old codger. just bought a K-50. Decided I can't manage without digital.
Since I've never owned a phone with a camera I will probably ask a lot of naff questions.
Hoping to get the new toy to perform without an automatic lens.

Just to let you know how ignorant I am :- I didn't realise that there were automatic lenses for the K-50. So banged my head against the wall for a couple of hours trying to get a photo in auto. Found how to set to use aperture ring and taken my first shots. Pleasantly surprised at the picture without a flash.
